Transhuman – The comic mini-series

Transhumancomic1Picked up the first issue of Transhuman from Image Comics yesterday. It’s a four-part mini-series in a documentary format set in the not to distant future and deals with the initial commercial forays into commercialising technologies to produce ‘off-the-shelf’ human self-modification of a transhumanist nature. I thought the first issue was quite good, and offered some insight into the commercial agendas of biotechnology often glossed over in the transhumanist literature. I’ll be interested in where the series goes.

The comic made it onto the transhumanist-related Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies blog. See IEET – Transhuman, the comic, which includes a link to some sample pages from the issue here.

Various reviews of the issue can be found at:
